Here at FanSided, we have taken the idea of March Madness to a new level. We are hosting our own little tournament – the Worst Man Drafted (WMD) Tournament. Here’s the rundown, courtesy of NFL Mocks:
What is the Worst Man Drafted (WMD) Tournament? To celebrate March Madness, the FanSided.com sports network compiled a field of the 64 worst NFL Draft busts of all time. A blogger from each NFL team nominated their team’s worst two draft picks of all time. 32 teams x 2 = 64. After we had our field of 64, the staff here at NFL Mocks did some serious NCAA-style research to seed the field. (hat tip: Mike from Bear Goggles On on the concept)
The two picks representing the Browns are two of the team’s most glorious draft busts of all-time: QB Tim Couch and DE Courtney Brown. The best part of all this is that the winners (although no one is really a winner in all of this) are chosen through a voting process. The first round is going on now, and the second round will begin on Monday. We all know that both Couch and Brown deserve to be considered as the worst draft pick EVER and, quite frankly, it is a slap in the face that Couch is only a 4-seed and Brown is a 7-seed. Surely the Browns have chosen bigger busts than that in comparison to the rest of the league. Let’s show everyone just how demoralizing the Browns’ draft history has been!
Here’s where you can vote:

Courtney Brown (East region): http://nflmocks.com/2009/03/26/worst-man-drafted-tournament-east-region-round-one/
Let’s go Browns!
